About this Cook
I am a mother of 3 and I love to scrapbook, cook, fish and dive. I enjoy reading and vacationing.
My favorite things to cook
Hmmm. I just really enjoy trying new recipes. Dont necessarily have a favorite, I've dabbled in baking, but really enjoy trying to come up with a variety of different dinner ideas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making holiday cookies with my family. Also, the past few years we have a group of women (some family and now friends joining in) where we make a menu, do group shopping and have a "cookathon" .... we spend all day in the kitchen, making group size meals that we divide up and take home and freeze. Because we make large quantities, it ends up being extremely cost effective and we spend quality time together.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade carrot cake! My son and I spent hours grating carrots and were so worried with how it would turn out. DELICIOUS. topped with cream cheese icing.

Foolproof Rib Roast
I have to say, I was so nervous about this cooking method, especially since the meat was pretty expensive and I had never cooked one before. I ended up getting (2) 2.5 cuts. I sat them on the counter for about an hour, and sprinkled salt, pepper and Steak seasoning. I placed in a pre heated 375 oven for 30 minutes, turned off the oven and although tempted, didn't open the oven door. I let sit for one hour and 15 minutes, then turned back on to 375 for another 20 minutes. I let sit on counter for another 10 to 15 before slicing. This was absolutely amazing, simple and delicious. There was enough juice in the pan for dipping and I can't wait for the next holiday to try again! Thank you for sharing.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
This is great. We have added this to our meal rotation and make once every 6 weeks or so. Great flavor, and even better left over the next day. We melt provolone on some lightly buttered rolls, bake for a few and then serve with a small side bowl of the dipping sauce. My son loves to add a bit of horseradish sauce to his. GREAT RECIPE
